Parks Endowment Fund
Endowment: money or property given for the permanent use of an institution.
Parks are for the present and the future.
They are designed to help create a healthy environment for persons of all ages and abilities. We conserve land to improve the quality of our lives, and to save the best of our natural and historic resources for future generations. Parks, through their natural environment, keep us alive. Their beauty inspires and renews us. Preserving and protecting our parks helps build and sustain a healthy, vibrant, growing community. By contributing to an endowment fund, you are leaving a lasting legacy that will benefit the lives of others for generations.
The Indianapolis Parks Foundation has established a Parks Endowment Fund.
The Parks Endowment Fund will assure that our parks will have the necessary funds to meet maintenance needs today and in the future. This fund will provide a permanent source of money that will be used to address ongoing maintenance needs for our parks system.
